Interfaith: Islamic Radicals Welcome

An interesting exploration of government "interfaith outreach" programs over at FrontPage. It looks at how Philadelphia's city government uses interfaith outreach programs to reach out and legitimize Islamist radicals. In the name of tolerance the city tacitly endorses the intolerant.

Imagine if you will a city "reaching out" to the Westboro Baptist Church or to the KKK. They wouldn't, of course, and would be rightfully excoriated if they did so.

However, governments routinely "reach out" to Muslim organizations in favor of killing homosexuals, apostates, and blasphemers. They also support convicted terrorists and some of these groups, like the Nation of Islam, are explicitly racist.

This is just one more example in the long laundry list of examples in which liberal politicians lower their expectations for minority groups. In this case that Muslims can have all sorts of intolerant attitudes which would never be accepted if those same attitudes were held by Jews or Christians.

Anyway, go check out the article.
